I agree with some of the other reviews. The dough was dry so I added 1-1/2 tbs cold water and it helped. Not much flavor though.
They taste good and look very cute. These cookies really hold their shape! But I also had trouble with the dough being a bit hard to work with. Slightly crumbly and it took a good bit of kneading to get to a roll-able consistency. After one hour in the fridge I let the dough stand to warm for about 30 minutes at room temp. I rolled the dough on a silicone mat and used a pancake turner to transfer the cookie from the mat to the pan. Next year I will look for a similar recipe that has a slightly higher fat/liquid content so that the dough is easier to work with. Too much kneading made my cookies a bit tough and it was too time consuming. I am also wondering if the weather affects how the dough turns out. The humidity was very low the day I made these.
These cookies have been part of our family's Halloween traditions for several years now! Not only are they delicious, but they're adorable! I use the recipe as is and have never had problems with the dough.
I would never attempt this recipe again. I followed the recipe to a T and it was so dry I couldn't even form a dough. I am not sure how this worked out for anyone else. I will use this idea but not with this dough recipe. What a waste of ingredients :(
I liked the way the cookies turned out, but I wouldn't refridegerate longer than 2 hours, the dough gets too hard. We had to let it sit out a long time before we could roll it.They were delicous when we did get them rolled out and baked though.
I have never seen such a cute Halloween cookie- I just had to make them! Simple yet effective design. The cookie itself is tender and rich. I didnt change a thing and will be making them to take to all the October gatherings. All the kidlets were very impressed- with my "Mr Bones Cookies".
This was a great way to re-use my Christmas "ginger bread cookie cutter" for Halloween. Our 3 1/2 and 5 yr. old grandkids love all of your wonderful ideas, which keep them busy and develops their creative skills. Thanks so much and keep those GREAT ideas coming.Grandma Loretta and Papa
